Stampin' Up! and Project Life

We are so so so excited to let you know we've partnered with the amazing Becky Higgins to bring you the real deal--authentic Project Life products, now in exclusive Stampin' Up! colors and designs. If you've somehow missed the Project Life craze and are wondering what it's all about, we'll fill you in: it's a super simple, totally affordable way to get your photos into albums: you just slip your photos into Photo Pocket Pages and add designed cards. It's a back-to-basics approach to documenting your life. In a nutshell, it's all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.

We will be able to order a selection of products starting May 1.

A tisket, a tasket, a chocolate egg basket


We made these at Club in March--early enough to get them made for gifts! The chocolate eggs are from Costco, and the bases are made from three Spiral Flower diecuts. We twisted the flowers together, then cut out enough of the center for the egg to fit. A little bit of hot glue secures everything for a super cute spring gift!

Eggcellent!

When I first looked through the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack, I thought several of them looked just like Easter eggs! We made this quick card at our March Club meeting. It was easy and fun, and makes a great project for this month!

Reflections on Watercolor Wednesday


You're probably wondering if I'll EVER run out of these watercolor background cards. Possibly not. Ha!

The card in the foreground was masked before stamping the background. I like the effect! This is my favorite stamp in the Wetlands set--I love the reflection, and I didn't have to do any extra work!

You make me happy when skies are gray

Just a few days left to order your Sale-a-bration FREE items, including this set! Sale-a-bration ends on Monday, March 31. 

I had seen this technique all over Pinterest and decided to give it a try. I used the Starburst Framelits to cut a mask, then a piece of light chipboard to make my "rays." I sponged with Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, and a bit of Tangerine Tango. The clouds are made from two different products because I wanted different sized clouds. :-) The smaller ones are from the Cupcake Builder Punch. The larger cloud is from the Word Bubble Framelits set. The sentiment--from the Sale-a-bration set "See Ya Later"--is inked with markers in Gray and Crushed Curry, then cut with a Chalk Talk Framelit.

We made this card at March's club meeting, and I think they turned out great!
